Space Debris photo collection

Among others, a motor casing landing in Saudi Arabia ...

Space.com page regaled us with a new collection of photos and pictures about Space Debris and its consequences, showing up the real threat of the excess of waste generated during most Space operations.

One of the most impacting photos is the one above, consisting in the finding of a Titanium motor casing of a Delta-II third stage, that reentered the atmosphere and landed in Saudi Arabia about 240 Km of the capital Riyadh.

You can take a look to the complete photo collection at Space.com

Have fun !
